    Hey yall! This thread is about my trucks, diecast and remote control trucks included. Oh yeah, and my goat kid Riley! My first vehicle is Derek, my 2003 Tacoma which now has almost 290k miles. I bought him from the original owner, my dad! I decided to retire him from driving in the winter in all that nasty salt, so I went on the hunt for another truck that I wouldn't care about as much. I got on Craigslist and found a nice 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 that had been posted just 2 hours ago. I have admired and dreamed of owning a second gen Ram since I was a little girl! So long story short, I bought him and named him Purdy Face lol! It didn't take me long to realize that my almost perfect condition Dodge wasn't going to be my winter truck either. So I um, went out and bought another truck! 2000 Ford Ranger with 120k miles. He's a decent little guy, even though my parents don't approve haha! I named him Parasite because he's kinda a money pit, but I changed it to Paradise! I'm planning on painting him neon green! Here's a picture of my truck herd and I'll be posting many more! Skip to the end if you wanna see what's new!IMG_2681.jpg

    This is the only aftermarket bumper I could find that says it will fit a flareside/stepside Tacoma. Mounting brackets are not included, so does anyone know if brackets for a regular bumper would work?aof-2203t-ap_xl.jpg

    Is that the trail gear bumper?

    The ends basically slide right over the frame and bolt right into place using the existing holes in your frame.

    I have that same bumper.

    Btw nice fucking scenery in those pics :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the info! I found it on Summit Racing and it's called AllPro Offroad. Glad you like my pics! I'll post some of my toy trucks next time!

    Awesome Dodge girl! That thing looks like new.

    By the way, what happened to the original rear bumper on your Taco? Some fish eyed goat eat it?

    Yeah, same bumper then.

    Thinking about it though, the wrap around may look a bit weird with your flareside.

    The bumper will essentially have a small gap between the "step" and tubing but you'll have a larger gap right above it.

    Thank you! Old Purdy Face just hit 40,000 miles! He's the same year as me! Derek my Taco has around 275,000 miles, and has some issues. Derek has a fairly new frame and most of the body rust has been removed. I wanted to save the bumper, but changed my mind after seeing how bad it was when my dad helped me take it off.IMG_5106.jpg IMG_5104.jpg
